Lucas Talks Star Wars TV Series

Trading Skywalkers for robots?

by | October 17, 2007 | Comments

Three decades after taking theatrical audiences to a galaxy far, far away, George Lucas is preparing to bring the Star Wars universe to the small screen.

Variety reports that after years of speculation, Lucas has begun publicly talking up a planned “live-action television series spinoff” of the Star Wars films. From the article:

Lucas told The Los Angeles Times he has “just begun work” on the series, which will not include the films’ major characters Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader.

“The Skywalkers aren’t in it, and it’s about minor characters,” Lucas told the Times.

Lucas wouldn’t reveal details, but joked that the series would be about “the life of robots.”

The article also touches on the CGI series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which Lucas Animation has been working on “for months” and is in search of a network home.
